Beach Bride Sea Turtle Rescue
Beach brides dream of a clean and beautiful beach for their wedding. Climate change and pollution are damaging our beaches and the wildlife that depends on them. We’re hoping to make a tiny difference with our limited resources. Our humble goal is to finance the adoption & rehabilitation of at least one Polynesian sea turtle by the end of 2021!
We visited the Te mana o te Moana sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation center in 2012. Located on the island of Moorea in the South Pacific, the foundation has provided care to distressed sea turtles since 2004. With the help of the Intercontinental Hotel, Vibrequin swimwear, Air Tahiti, Paul Gauguin Cruises, and other sponsors the Polynesian turtle population has thrived in this unique
habitat. We were touched by the dedication and compassion of the volunteers in the program. The beautiful sea turtles melted our hearts and inspired us to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
A few years later our daughter was born. Our visit to the turtle island sanctuary was one of our favorite memories and we named her Moorea. During the COVID 19 pandemic, we decided life was too short to talk about helping the planet and decided to really try and make a difference. We knew we’d need help. Most of the brides we’ve worked with have been genuinely empathetic and kind. The ones we surveyed loved the concept. We decided to go for it and launched the Beach Bride Sea Turtle Rescue initiative from our tiny home office in Ocean City, MD.
How Can One Bride Help?
We created a unique line of BBSTR Bridal Gift Bags & Honey Money Pillow Boxes.
The proceeds will be used to adopt and care for turtles on the island. In the fall of 2022 (if COVID allows) we’ll be returning to the shelter to volunteer, help clean the beach, and create a documentary to raise awareness for sea turtle conservation. We’re planning to write a children’s book dedicated to the habitat protection of these endangered beauties. With the grassroots support of our Beach Bride community we can make a difference!
